the best speech that could have been given by any president of any party after 911.

in the speech he says the u.s. has no greater friend then great britian.
this without question is true.

in the press confrence he says that isreal has no greater friend than the u.s.
this also can not be denied.

canada is also our friend and our ally.
if the prime minister choose not to help.
well that was his choice.

Subject: Who IS The U..S's Greatest Friend?
2 different recordings which are lumped together for some odd reason. The first is when Bush spoke to Congress about a week after 9/11. He thanks all sorts of nations for their friends, then says the comment that made Canadians smack their heads (and we're still smacking our heads!) by saying "The US has no better friend than the US). Funny how he doesn't mention Canada at all during this speech. Funny how Chretien didn't want to help Bush. You figure the connection.
The 2nd part is a news conference that took place about a month after 9/11. Good conference, with many references to evil-doers and how they're gonna smoke them outta their caves! Also, in response to a question, Israel, Bush says, has no greater friend than the US. Tsk tsk! Such favoritism!

About one week after 9/11/2001 the President of the United States addresses a joint session of Congresss and the nation, it was a great speech which included press questions afterwards. We will prevail! Let's Roll!!
